When the Taliban are in a near-hide and waiting to ambush your element as you’re taking a midnight stroll through scenic Afghanistan; a helpful eye in the sky can make all the difference in the world. This AH-64 Apache, attack helicopter pilot is that infrared-enhanced helpful eye in the sky and truly encapsulates air-ground collaboration. Listen as he guides a soldier on the ground with range adjustments over the radio – for optimal grenade placement on Taliban positions in a dilapidated structure.
This is teamwork.
And yes that awesome callsign that you heard was ‘Cracker Mexican‘. I’m jealous that I didn’t think of that one.
